At least three of my favorite weather sites are predicting measurable snowfall for the Adirondacks this week. My fellow ski-obsessed friend, Lionel over at Famous Internet Skiers (FIS), is definitely getting his stoke on, comparing this storm to getting a “Full Size Candy Bar” at Halloween, while maintaining scientific objectivity about his forecast. The more subdued meteorologists at Accuweather are calling for a “Northeast Snowy Trick or Treat,” while the hard-core scientists at NOAA are simply saying, “Snow likely on Thursday.”
I, on the other hand, who has never claimed to be a scientist and therefore do not hold myself to a dispassionate science-driven standard, am waxing up the skis.
For the record, today’s blog post title is evidence of my latest attempt at pragmatism: it took a great deal of self control to refrain from using my favorite punctuation mark related to snow. As regular readers of Adirondack Lifestyle know, I get rather jubilant about the prospect of the first real snowstorm of the season!
